Dry Winter Hair? Need Some Condtioning? Redken to the Rescue

redken_real_control_overnight_treatAre you in major need of deep conditioning due to drag of the winter months.  I have noticed that my hair is definitely more on the frizzy side.  I have found the answer!  I discovered a few weeks ago the Redken Real Control Overnight Treat Deep Conditioning treatment!  The treatment is a mousse like substance.  You brush it in your hair before you sleep and wash it out in the morning.  I was worried that it may make for an uncomfortable night’s sleep or transfer on my pillow.  No problems here.  It didn’t even feel greasy or heavy. The treatment was completely absorbed in my hair within a few minutes.

This is definitely worth a try.  Check it out at Redken.com.

Hillary Duff’s 21st Birthday & Pureology

Happy Birthday Hillary’s Duff!  Hillary’s 21st birthday was on Saturday and of course Hillary had to swing it in complete Duff style with beau, Mike Comrie.  Hillary was spotted before the big bash on the streets of NY at a local Children’s bookstore ubber casual.  Insiders have told StyleBell that each of the guests at the cozy bash, including sis Haylie and Nick Zano, received a Pureology gift basket including the Pureology Nano Shampoo and Nano Conditioner, Pureology Thickening Mist, and the Pureology Nano Wax.    

Whats good for Hillary’s friends and family is good for me.  I had to get my hands on the Pureology Nano Shampoo and Conditioner.  The Pureology Nano line of products includes, of course, Nano technology which helps to streghthen, moisturize, and improve your overall hair condition.  Added benefit Pureology is known to help retain hair color and has zerosulfates.

So lets put it to the test.  I opened the shampoo bottle and felt the consistency and smell.  It has a very luxurious feel to it and the smell is incredible, a cross between Jasmine and Roses.  I love it.  I used both the shampoo and conditioner and I really felt a noticable difference in my hair.  My hair was softer, manageable, and had an incredible shine.  Although the conditioner is supposed to be on the heavier side it did not weigh my hair down.  I have darker hair so many times the deeper conditioners can make my hair look greasy.  Not with the Pureology Nano.  I give this combo a definite thumbs up.  I know you all will love it!

WEN Collection by Chaz Dean

WEN hair collectionHave you all heard of the WEN Collection of hair care products created by celebrity stylist Chaz Dean?  I have been hearing some fantastic reviews of the eco-friendly, sodium sulfate free hair care line.  In the 80’s Chaz helped to develop hair care products for other hair companies.  He noticed that those lines included harsh detergents which made the hair dull, lifeless, and frizzy.  This was how WEN was born. 

The WEN hair care line cleanses the hair with astringent and antibacterial properties without lathering.  Yes that does take some getting used to.  The best part – there are no detergents or harsh chemicals in the products.  The results – sheen, luster, moisture, and strength to your hair!

Chaz is up to more good stuff.  Chaz is making available for the first time, to the public, an exclusive formula he has been using on his celebrity clients for over 15 years – the WEN Re-Moist Hydrating Mask, in Lavender, Cucumber Aloe, Sweet Almond Mint and Fig. This deep, intensive treatment, which may also be applied as an overnight conditioner, effectively re-hydrates hair to a healthy shine. Finally there’s the WEN Styling Crème; a weightless, paraben-free formula for manageable styling while eliminating frizz, and adding shine and volume to hair while acting as a protective barrier from humidity and the damaging heat of styling tools.

This is something I have to try out!  Product review soon to come.
